cent OS 6.3 : eth0 shows ip but does not ping to other machines

Link to this post 10 Nov 12

hi,
i have cent os 6.3 (2.6.32-279.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP), 64 bit AMD machine. It has 2 ethernet interfaces and 1 dual port ib card. initially eth0 had 192.168.16.61 as ip. we then changed it to 172.28.2.61 and ifconfig show the new ip address. Now if we try to ping any other machine of 172.28.2.0 network, it does not ping. tcpdump -i eth0 shows that it still tries to contact 16.0 network machines.

There is no iptables/selinux. eth1 is 172.29.2.671 which is working absolutely fine.

#ifconfig eth0

what can be the issue?

Could the other machine(s) be blocking icmp packets? also have you tried to use nmap to run a port scan to see if any machines with open ports can be located?
